Juicy Latin Roots


One of my favorite Latin jazz musicians is percussionist Willie Bobo. This New York native released many great records during the 1960's and 70's that often had an overall funky "boogaloo" groove. He played alongside some of the greatest jazz and Latin artists including Cal Tjader, Tito Puente, Mongo Santamaria, and many others. Here is one of my favorite Willie Bobo tracks, titled "Roots" from the 1967 album Juicy. Have a nice weekend!
